Garry McCoy returns to MotoGP this year, riding for the Italian FB Corse team.
McCoy spent 2008–2009 in World Superbike competition and last competed in MotoGP in 2006.
He signed a contract with the FB Corse team on the weekend.
John Hopkins was expected to ride for the FB Corse team, but recently signed with M4 Suzuki to race in the AMA Superbike series.
Update (Feb 2nd):
McCoy will in fact be riding a MotoGP bike for FB Corse, but it won’t be Ducati powered. The machine will have an inline triple developed by the Oral Engineering Group. The engine was reportedly designed originally for BMW’s MotoGP project before the German firm dedicated its resources to World Superbike.
